Ventura Triathlon Olympic Distance aka my first triathlon

Breath of Life Ventura Triathlon, olympic distance (1.5K swim / 40K bike / 10K run). It was Sunday, 28th of June 2015 and it was my first triathlon. Well, you guessed it: I loved it. Let me tell you about it.


Triathlon training: Wetsuit and transition 1

Triathlon is a complex sport with lots of various aspects to think about. Each sport has its own specificities and you also have to take care of the transitions between the sports. We will speak about the wetsuit for the open water swim and training for the transition from the swim to the bike.


What's the plan for Sunday? For me, it's triathlon time...

Oh boy!... Here we are. Sunday, it's the Ventura Triathlon. MY triathlon. I made my decision about the distance. I'll go for the Olympic one: 1.5K swim / 40K bike / 10K run. On race week, what's on my mind?


On the agenda

Running, cycling, swimming, trail running... lots of fun for me, these last few months. My first motivation is having fun and enjoying being outdoors. It's working pretty well. Anyway, setting goals is not that bad either. So, let's see what June will bring for me.
